“Ex”?

AP headline: “McCain TV ad raises Obama’s links to ex-radical.”

Again, reasonable people can disagree on how to define “radical.” But if you’re going to say that Ayers is merely an ex-radical, even though he apparently hasn’t changed his basic views or apologized for his violent past, I’m a loss how you can ever use  “radical right” about people who were never violent at all — and who far less radical than Ayers is today. I mean pretty much every liberal in America refers to Gingrich-style Republicans as “radicals.” If they’re radicals, what the hell is Ayers?
